And behold, there was a great earthquake and the large egg did crack from the top and Jesus did burst forth with great you and said unto his disciples, ‘Be not afraid for even though the frame of this egg is a sturdy wire mesh yet the shell itself is a tasty sugar mixture. Go spread the good news!” But the Easter Chick remained unimpressed.

Matthew 28:1-10

Then sent Jesus two disciples, saying unto them, “Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an enormous bunny tied, and also a giant chick with her, but take the enormous bunny, and bring it unto me, but leave the giant chick where it is. And if anyone say ought unto you, ye shall say, the Lord hath need of a really enormous bunny; and straightway they shall send it.”

Matthew 21:1-3

Culture of Illusion – Got to Love a Hater.


I just have a soft spot for this glorious psychopath so I thought I would share a little observation about him with you all:

Diego_de_Landa
CLICK AT WHERE I AM LOOKING! YEAH! EXACTLY THERE!

’We found a large number of books in these characters and, as they contained nothing in which were not to be seen as superstition and lies of the devil, we burned them all, which they (the Maya) regretted to an amazing degree, and which caused them much affliction.’

History, being full of ironies as it is, continues with this fine fellow:

Bishop Diego de Landa Calderón, whilst responsible for a great deal of destruction of Mayan art and literature, due to the assiduous nature of his recording of that destruction, is also our major source for the very thing he was spending much of his time destroying. Oh irony, hold me close, keep me warm in the dark watches of the night.

Culture of Illusion – Beware of mathematicians.


St. Augustine wished very hard for the invention of the pocket calculator.

It seems that, for a short time, the word for astrologer was the same as the word for mathematician. For this reason, for a long time St. Augustine would warn:

The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

De Genesi ad Litteram, Book II, xviii, 37, St. Augustine (354-430)

He was of course warning them against astrologers. Although maybe mathematicians were a threat too.

Either way, it does make me chuckle. I am chuckling right now.
